Clonoe ladies began their league campaign with a 1-9 to 1-2 home win against Rock.

A series of first half goals proved pivitol in Beragh’s win over Clann Na nGael ladies.
Beragh 6-9 Clann na nGael 1-7
Despite first half points from Saoirse McCormack and Mairéad Conwell, the experience of Beragh shone through as they responded with impressive scores with Elizabeth Mc Garvey white hot throughout.  The young Clann side battled hard with Jane Devine netting a well worked score to bring the Clann Na Gael girls back into touch. But several scores from Beragh enabled them to be in control from early in the contest.
Further points from Niamh Doherty, Hannah Sheerin, Fionnuala Conwell and Aislinn O’Neill allowed the scoreboard to keep ticking over for the Gaels with the half time score reading 1.6-5.4 to the Red Knights. Sarah Louise Franey, Jane Lyons, Roisin Mc Sorley and Sarah Gorman all stood out in a very assured team display.
Beragh dominated the second half and picked up where they left off finding the net early in the second half. The Clann Na nGael side battled hard with Aideen Traynor, Ellen Devine, Colleen Kerlin and Eimear O’Kane in defence but upfront the Gaels failed to get the shots converted into scores. Mairéad Conwell pointed again for the Clanns but Beragh finished off on top with the final score reading 1.7- 6.9.

Cappagh travelled out to Clanabogan for their eagerly anticipated derby clash with Drumragh and a brace of late goals sealed the win for them. Drumragh led at the break 0-6 to 0-5 and could have been further ahead had a Neamh Woods screamer not rebounded off the crossbar. The Sarsfields were 0-9 to 0-7 in front late in the game but were caught with goals from Laura Cochrane and Teri Mc Cusker as Cappagh snatched the win 2-9 to 0-10. Beth Donaghy (5), Neamh Woods (2), Breanna Breslin, Clodagh Loughran and Kathryn Donaghy were on target for Drumragh while Caitlin Kelly, Laura Cochrane and Teri Mc Cusker accounted for the Cappagh scores.

Anna Quinn (2), Cara Mulgrew and Rebekah Bell were also on target in an impressive display by the loughshore girls.

Donaghmore 2-8 St Macartans 8-15

Joline Donnelly, Shauna Mc Girr and Chloe Mc Caffrey each bagged a brace of goals in an impressive opening half to leave St Macs in an almost unassailable position at the break. Niamh Mc Nulty and Michaela Mc Guigan pointed for Donaghmore while a goal from Aisling Conlon left the half time score 6-9 to 1-2 in favour of Macartans. Cathy Maguire and Joline Donnelly hit the net after the break while Niamh Mc Nulty scored Donaghmore’s second goal of the game.

The remainder of the first half saw several well executed scores from Mairéad Devine, Stacie Gilmore, Kirstie McFadden and Cara McAleer to reach the short whistle leading 3-6 to 0-3. Stewartstown were a different side after the break bagging three quick fire points. Owen Roes found themselves under intense pressure as Stewartstown narrowed the gap to three points. However impressive displays from Owen Roes midfielders Chloe Devine and Racheda Kelly alongside Aine Coyle and Cara McAleer in the half back line eventually stemmed the tide. This defensive unit proved too strong for the home team with some great saves from Naomh Barr as the Roes battled to the end to secure the win with a final score of 5.7 to 2.10.   Owen Roes Scorers: Kirstie McFadden 2-0, Cara McAleer 1-3, Clodagh Devine 1-1, Stacie Gilmore 1-1, Mairead Devine 0-2.

Errigal Ciaran 1-12, Killeeshil St Mary’s 3-9
Killeeshil and Errigal Ciaran served up a cracker of a local derby at Dunmoyle which finished 3-9 to 1-12 in favour of the visitors. Goals win matches and so it proved in this case as Errigal failed to take their chances while Grainne Rafferty (1-4), Bronagh Mc Kenna(1-3) and Louise Kelly (1-0) made the most of theirs. Errigal trailed at the break 1-6 to 1-5 but within ten minutes of the restart led by three following three Maria Canavan points and a score from Cailin Mc Cann. A sin bin infraction hampered Errigal and Killeeshil made the most of that and their remaining chances to take the win.
Carrickmore St Colmcille’s 8-17 Edendork St Malachy’s 2-6
Carrickmore look like a side in a hurry to get back to senior football following this 8-17 to 2-6 win over last year’s Junior champions Edendork.

Galbally 3-11 Coalisland 5-3

Last year’s championship finalists were beaten in the opening game of the league by a Galbally team who just refused to give up.
It was an exhilerating game in Pearse Park that saw the home side take the spoils by a point with a late goal after the Fianna had just taken the lead with a goal at the other end. Referee Tracey Brennan added to the fare with an excellent display allowing the game to flow from end to end.
In the first half Coalisland were in the ascendency as they hit the net four times with two goals from Una McSherry and a goal a-piece from Nicole Murphy and Caeleann O’Donnell. Murphy also added a point while Galbally kept in the game with a goal from Ciara Kelly and two points apiece from Claire Mc Keown and Maeve Mc Glinchey leaving six between the sides at the interval.
However Coalisland struggled to score points landing only three from the boot of Murphy but missed a number of scoreable chances.

Meanwhile Galbally kept in touch in the second half raking up eight points. Mc Glinchey and Murphy were on target again with points while a well worked goal from Adrianna Mc Namee gave them momentum.

With minutes to go Galbally held a one point lead but went behind again when the Fianna bagged another goal. To their credit the Pearses refused to give up and Claire Mc Keown plundered  a late late goal to win a fabulous game 3-11 to 5-3.

Fintona Pearses 4-16 Mna na Deirge 3-13

Fintona got off to a winning start in their league campaign on Friday night with a hard fought victory over a dogged Castlederg side in St Lawrence’s Park. Fintona started the game strongly, holding a 2-7 to 1-2 lead at the end of the first quarter, with Emma Loane rattling the back of the net before Nichola Donnelly converted a penalty.

Points from Nichola Donnelly, Kayleigh Thompson and Aislinn Colgan kept Fintona in the driving seat. Castlederg never gave up however, with Shannon Lynch, Laura McSorley and Roisin Devlin taking the game to Fintona and reduced the deficit to 5. A number of Caitlin Donnelly saves and some brilliant defensive work from the Fintona defence, with Erin Marlow and Amy Kelly making some vital tackles, prevented Castlederg from narrowing the gap further before Fintona responded with a few well-taken scores from Alicia Quinn, Nichola Donnelly and Nicole Sweeney to steady the ship and leave a comeback out of reach.
